19th-Century French School Study Of A Dog

19th-Century French School Study Of A Dog

An enigmatic French school portrait study of a black and white dog looking upwards towards the yonder. We love the unfinished nature of this piece, which works well against the misty background of blue and green.

The painting is unsigned but it’s clearly been treasured over the years given its present restored condition.

Medium: Oil on canvas
Overall size: 17” x 22” / 43cm x 56cm
Year of creation: c. 1900
Provenance: France
Condition: Very presentable. Craquelure in areas but the paint layer is stable. Three tidy repairs with corresponding patches on the reverse.
